Marina Port Vell has become the first and only marina in the fabulous Barcelona yacht vacation location that can cater for charter yachts and private yachts of up to 190m in length, thanks to the recent Spanish approval. This now allows the five-star marina to berth such massive vessels as the current largest superyacht in the world – the mighty 180m giga yacht AZZAM.
The berth was approved by local authorities in April 2015, and can be found on Spanish quay, which presentely measures 435 metres. The berth within the newly transformed luxury superyacht marina makes it the destination of choice for larger yachts, when arriving from all around the world.
“We are proud to bring our clients and captains to Marina Port Vell, Barcelona. It’s the ideal location for our clients to start the summer cruising season,” comments Spanish Managing Partner at BWA Yachting Antonella Della Pietra.
